    Default Rocky mountain way ??

    Anyone have any idea how to count what is happening at about 3:19? I know it is odd time but keeps throwing me for a loop for some reason.

    If you are counting this in 6/8.. and his normal snare falls on beat 4. In these two measures he put the snare on beat 5 and then on the next measure beat 2. Timing stays the same.

    Keep in mind, you don't have to play those off beat snare hits to play the song. You can keep it consistent throughout if you want to and it's still OK. They aren't 'signature licks' so to speak. Nobody's going to miss them.

    Ahhh I am counting it in 4/4 and it started to feel like a 1/4 note triplet but I am having a hard time dialing it in. I will try 6/8 tonight. Thanks

    Yeah and I currently do that but I would like to add a litle flavor to it, ya know just in case another drummer is in the crowd
